Can't speak for others but I'll probably unsubscribe myself (or read it 
via gmane) if the ratio of "interesting" to "administrative" messages 
stays the way it is. For a list with very light traffic having two 
dozens Zarro Boogs per Child messages a day is a bit overwhelming.

Depends on what the majority thinks. I don't know how many people try to 
follow developments closely vs. those who only observe at a distance. 
For the latter, using an NNTP service like gmane is often just as useful 
an option so I wouldn't rule things out either way.
